Subject: Best of '77
The first GD bootleg I ever got was Cornell, Barton Hall 1977. Starting in about 1987, I played that tape until it fell apart. I collected many other Spring 1977 shows during my earliest days of tape collecting but eventually just became burnt out on the era itself. It's been a joy to rediscover this era after not listening for nearly 20 years. Somehow, I never got any of the three shows from this run at Winterland. It has been a very gratifying and exciting experience to come to the full realization that these three shows from 03/18-20 are my favorite of the era from the 1976 comeback until Keith's departure in 1979. This is another marvelous matrix recording from 'hansokolow'. With earphones, it puts me about 20 - 25 rows back dead-center in Winterland on this night. The sound reproduction is vivid and three-dimensional. The musicianship by the band is unparalleled, I think, compared to all others in the aforementioned four-year span. Virtually any song from this run can be considered "one of the best ever." These shows all have something very special about them that I can only describe as joyous. I prefer these mightily over any in the legendary May run and even the West Coast shows to follow in June. The feeling of the band AND the audience is like distilled exuberance or something akin. Heck, just check it out. If these concerts were more widely available during the rise of the "In The Dark" era, they would surely surpass in reputation anything else from the period. As a previous reviewer has mentioned, Garcia's tone and attack in the PITB on this night is just, well, unreal. Franklin's Tower, Loser and Eyes are worth stopping whatever you are doing and give a listen. Your day will magically improve. Thank you GD, AI, all tapers and tech wizards for these truly wonderful recording.

very cool matrix,
i'd prefer the sbd over any aud or matrix most days, but this solves the flutter in the Terrapin, which is IMO the best terrapin of all time. Yes the swing is a great version, and so it the 3/18/77 for the only found ending jam and 11/2/77 have there moments. But keith jerry bobby and phil have an extended moment in the first break, and the drums are right on with a thump not unlike 73 he's gone. I realize some people enjoy the possibility of a stretched out terrapin exit that lead into drums space in the 80's 90's, but Ill argue it was never as good as it was on march 19th of 1977.
June 77 Winterland is now a box set, very cool, march 77 Winterland is equally as appealing. if the box set comes out, I hope the matrix stays afloat.
This is one of my faves, Playing in the Band contains some of the best guitar ever.
